    Iceds 97 e36 estoril blue M3 EVO

    So here we go finally bit the bullet and got myself one an estoril blue (my favourite colour in the range personal choice) E36 M3 Evo , I am a massive fan of the e36 and have owned a few over the years but this is the one its been building up to. I posted up a help post not to long ago about this car and the long and short of it is I bought it for less than stated in that post I wont say I got it at a bargain poundstore price but i paid what I think its worth and that's good enough as at the end of the day its mine

    So things that have been done by the previous owners that I can see,

    currently on car,

    Scorpion back box (will be changed back to an evo back box)
    AC schnitzer short shift really not sure about this ill be leaving it and see if I get used to it before putting it back to original ive never had short shift before
    Simota air filter
    Carbon fibre centre where the window buttons are (this is going and its going back to black)

    Ive got a folder full of receipts services brakes tyres etc. etc.

    The body work is floorless no rust bubbles anywhere and the paintwork is lovely I know that it has had the arches done in its past. There is more history to this car but i'll get to that later for now it looks beautiful it drives floorless the engine is mint I drove it back from Birmingham so a 2 hour drive and it didn't miss a beat. PIC TIME

    I'm not going to do much to this car the only thing I think I might do is swap the interiors with my green one so all black rather than the cream that's in there other than that I'm really impressed with it and happy I have finally taken the step and got one thanks for reading

    Very nice example indeed! Gotta love that colour. I'd say that unwanted carbon shift surround will be sought after and fetch a few quid?

    All set for getting that hood down in the Summer...................just a pity it seems to have turned to Winter again :(

    Thanks guys all your comments much appreciated at the moment I'm putting the roof down in between rain spots lol.
    So today swapped the scorpion back to original this is what it looked like outside my house lol there's a one series out.



    The offender



    The car on the ramps



    The best look





    Now I'm not against loud exhausts but it gets a bit much when your only rocking around in half a car that gets noticed anyway it's just too much like a head ache and I really prefer the M exhaust note and look. Thanks for looking
